Consistent high-quality of papers published in " Toxicology and Applied Pharmacology " can only be maintained with the cooperation and dedication of a number of expert referees. The Editorswould like to thank all those who have donated the hours necessary to review, evaluate and comment on manuscripts; their conscientious efforts have enabled the journal to(More)
The polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH), benzo[a]pyrene (BaP), was compared to dibenzo[def,p]chrysene (DBC) and combinations of three environmental PAH mixtures (coal tar, diesel particulate and cigarette smoke condensate) using a two stage, FVB/N mouse skin tumor model. DBC (4nmol) was most potent, reaching 100% tumor incidence with a shorter latency to(More)
Selective production of rat mutant selenoprotein W with and without bound glutathione. Biochem. (2004) The uses of carcinogen-DNA adduct measurement in establishing mechanisms of mutagenesis and in chemoprevention. Effect of artificial mixtures of environmental polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons present in coal tar, urban dust and diesel exhaust particulates(More)
Humans are exposed to complex mixtures of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in the atmosphere. We examined the long term effects of a standard reference material (SRM) 1649a over time on the metabolic activation and DNA adduct formation by two carcinogenic PAHs, benzo[a]pyrene (BP) and dibenzo[a,l]pyrene (DBP) in the human mammary carcinoma derived cell line(More)
There is considerable evidence that exposure to air pollution is harmful to health. In the U.S., ambient air quality is monitored by Federal and State agencies for regulatory purposes. There are limited options, however, for people to access this data in real-time which hinders an individual's ability to manage their own risks. This paper describes a new(More)
